A Fragile Hope – 10 Year Anniversary – Vinyl + UK Tour

On Monday 18th June, 2007, almost 3 years after our debut ‘Darkness Prevails’ EP, we released our first full-length studio album, ‘A Fragile Hope’. It was to become a defining moment in our musical career and would open up opportunities that had previously been distant dreams to a group of young, ambitious friends and as we look back now, 10 years later, it is fair to say that the path we’ve led has had its fair share of euphoria, hilarity, sadness, luck, disappointment and achievement. Our story, like many others, is a tale of member-changes, missed opportunities, wrong decisions and sheer bad luck at times, blended with life-affirming moments of immense pride, achieving childhood dreams, forming amazing friendships, and sharing experiences that will stay with us forever.

Releasing this album on vinyl is something we have wanted to do for a very long time. When we finished the album all those years ago and listened back to the final masters, we had no idea what impact it would have on us as musicians and, from what we would come to learn over the years, how much it would affect those who listened to it. And so, with this in mind, we have decided that there would be no better way to celebrate this release and anniversary than to perform the album in it’s entirety at four very special shows.

We are also extremely happy to announce that we will be joined by original vocalist, Ed Gibbs, who augments our current lineup for the first time in nearly 4 years. Our ambition from the start was to have Paul and Ed involved in these shows as they are both integral members of this band. The enthusiasm, commitment and hard work shown by both of them to make all this possible has shown how strong a bond we all have as musicians and above all, as friends. These are going to be truly memorable shows and we can not wait to get back on the road.

Ed Gibbs, “I’m dead excited to be getting back on the road with the guys to celebrate 10 years since the release of ‘A Fragile Hope’! I think the only time we ever played these songs back to back was during the writing sessions for the record, and we’ve certainly never done it live, so it should be exciting. It’ll be loads of fun to play these songs now, 10 years is a long time and I’m sure the songs will have changed a bit with us, that or it’s going to feel like stepping back in time. I’ll let you know…”

Paul Green, “I’m really excited to be playing these shows with the guys and even more so that Ed is on board, after all he wrote the damn thing! I remember picking up A Fragile Hope when it came out, it was that certain time in the UK scene when there was a real birth of exciting bands (DSHS, Architects, Jonny Truant etc.), watching DSHS play these songs live at a point when I was just getting going in music was hugely inspiring. It’s pretty surreal to be performing its anniversary shows. We’ve been planning these for a longtime so I hope you can all get down as it’s going to be special!”

Do not miss these shows – let’s make them ones to remember!
